We currently support captions for video to video workflow only (audio to video captions coming soon)

There are several ways to upload captions to Repurpose for video to video workflows.

Method 1 - Working with Facebook Captions
Using Facebook autogenerate option (only for Facebook Pages):

Visit your Facebook Page, locate your video, click the (...) and chose Edit Video.

Select the Captions Section and if you have the autogenerate captions turned on it the captions should be already done. (If not, you can activate it or start the process to generate captions)



Once finished click the Review button to edit the captions and make any necessary corrections before saving your post.





Uploading your own captions to Facebook (Pages, Groups, Personal Profiles)

Open the video on your Facebook page, group, or personal profile, click the (...) and chose Edit Video.



Upload the SRT file to your Facebook video (we highly recommend you use a tool like Otter.ai to generate srt captions - very inexpensive and very accurate)

If you are going to upload your own SRT file, Facebook want your SRT file name to end on '.en_US.srt'. For example, "CaptionsFile.en_US.srt"

Choosing Facebook Captions inside of Repurpose
Head to your Workflows Tab on Repurpose and hit the Resync button from inside the View Videos Page to let Repurpose checks to see if they are captions on your Facebook video. If captions are found, Repurpose display that with a 'CC' icon next to it.



After hitting 'Publish', on the pop-up window choose to use the Captions from Facebook before you proceed.



Edit the Workflow settings and enable the option to always use Burn Facebook Captions (when available) so you don't have to change it each time you click Publish

Method 2 - Manually uploading the SRT file to the video on Repurpose:

Visit your Workflows Tab and enter to your View List Page.

After hitting 'Publish', on the pop-up window choose to 'Upload caption file' and browser for it on your computer.



Method 3 - Using Google Drive or DropBox folders (only for workflows Video to Video):

Your video file and your SRT file must have the same name. For example:



Visit your Workflows Tab and enter to your View List Page. If captions are found, Repurpose display that with a 'CC' icon next to it.



After hitting 'Publish', on the pop-up window choose to use the 'Captions file from this folder' before you proceed.



You can also upload your own SRT file if you happen to have it. Choose the option 'Upload caption file' to do so.
